Brillante Ma Mendoza, the director of SHINIUMA Dead Horse from the omnibus film series Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2016: Reflections, will speak at the 26th International Conference on the Future of Asia organized by Nikkei Inc. (Special Sponsor: The Japan Foundation). He will participate in a session titled “Reconnecting the region through cultural exchange.”

On this occasion, Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2016: Reflections will be available for free online streaming from Thursday, May 13 to Sunday, May 23, 2021.

The first of the omnibus film series, Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2016: Reflections was co-produced by the Japan Foundation Asia Center and Tokyo International Film Festival. Under the theme of “Living Together in Asia,” crew and cast joined forces across national borders to reflect on the lives of characters who journey between Japan and Cambodia, the Philippines, and Malaysia.

Mr. Mendoza is currently directing Gensan Punch, a Japan-Philippines co-production film (recipient of the Japan Foundation Asia Center Grant for Enhancing People-to-People Exchange; scheduled to be released in 2021).

SHINIUMA Dead Horse, filmed in 2016 on his first-ever shooting in Japan, is shot in his characteristic style, brimming with life and spontaneity. Together with the two other films in the series – Pigeon set in Penang, Malaysia and directed by YUKISADA Isao, and Beyond the Bridge, a love story connecting Cambodia and Japan directed by Sotho Kulikar – we hope you will enjoy the screening.

[Streaming period] The film will be available to stream on the Japan Foundation Asia Center webpage from Thursday, May 13 to Sunday, May 23, 2021 (Japan Standard Time)
